Notes and Documents
Dead bodies are every day found round about the Battle Ground
& that not ten of the Royalists have found Together Since. Of
the Republicans, as they Call themselves, Eight only were killed
& 22 wounded one of whom has since Died. In a letter I Re-
ceived from Major Perry who Commanded the Republican Army,
he says, that "the Spaniards (Patriots) were Mixed in with
American Companies & fought nobly. The Regular Troops with
Helisondos [Elizondo's] Army it is understood were generally
from Durango. It is believed that the Assembling of this Army
is the last Effort that will be made to Prevent the Republicans
from ever crossing over River Grand. General Toledo has gone
to St Antonio to take the Command of the Army & will be able
from the Number of Volunteers who are joining him from the
U. S., And Spaniards & Indians to proceed on over River Grand
Immediately with 4000 Men. Doctor Forsyth who has lately
Accepted the Command of the Artilery writes that they have
Sixteen field Pieces well mounted 10,000 pounds of gun powder
& Plenty of Cannon Balls & Lead. Genl Bernardo Guteros
[Gutierrez] has become unpopular, he has Since the Battle of
the 20th Caused 7 or 8 Prisoners more to be put to death.-
Capt. Slocum who Commanded a Company in the Battle of the
20th Arrived here Yesterday, he was Sent with an Eschort to
meet Genl. Toledo & Conduct him to St Antonio, he goes off
Tomorrow & will Overtake the General at Nacogdoches who
has there Collected, & on the Road about 400 Recruits who are
going on with him; Expresses pass now Regularly between this
place & St. Antonio every Nine or ten days.
Our accounts from Mexico are not very Satisfactory, it is
generally Reported that Genl Rayon's Army has been very
Successfull; have Taken Durango, Zacatacas [Zacatecas], Saltee
[Saltillo], & Several Other Towns, & that the Province of Qua-
huilla will all join Genl Toledo & three or four other Provinces
will follow their Example.
with Great Respect & Esteem
Your Obt Hble. Servant
Genl John Armstrong
Secretary of War.
